Powerfully English point-and-click journey Yorkshire Gubbins was first launched in late 2017. In her evaluation, Jay Castello mentioned, “Regardless of being set in a world with slug-people, vampires who run trophy retailers, and runaway robots, Yorkshire Gubbins depicts a well-recognized model of The North. In case you’re not updated in your English regional politics, there is a stark North-South divide, and we make jokes about it to cover the very actual underlying socioeconomic disparities.”
On the time, Yorkshire Gubbins contained a central episode known as Humble Pie, through which kleptomaniac protagonist Steggy units out on a quest to win a pie competitors after retrieving her “particular meat”, in addition to a bonus prequel, and a tutorial episode known as Verb Faculty. With a promise of future episodes on the way in which free of charge, we settled down to attend.
Now, in April of 2021, a brand new episode has lastly arrived. And it is a musical. Aye Truthful Woman is a tough half-hour of easy point-and-click silliness set on Necessary Singing Day. Which is precisely what it seems like: a day when robots wonderful you 20 pence in case you do not sing. Steggy’s not having any of it, and so your mission is to infiltrate and overcome the Necessary Singing Day singing competitors.
You are going to need to steal a bunch of issues and doubtless smash somebody’s day alongside the way in which, as a result of that is an journey sport in any case.
In addition to this new episode, Yorkshire Gubbins has been up to date with keyboard shortcuts so you do not have to click on on the verbs like some sort of heathen, in addition to an optionally available filter known as Steggyvision that makes the pixel artwork look a bit glowy and smeary prefer it used to on our outdated TV units. One other addition: you can begin a brand new episode with out deleting your save within the earlier one. Good.
Designer Charlotte Gore says that, “work will now be starting on a model new Gubbins episode. Progress will probably be gradual as I’ve a full time job now, however I am very assured the event is sustainable. And that is excellent news.”
